Birth Control.

Otherwise I`m not sure there really is a way.

Lots of girls will take bcp to stop it from coming during the week of their of wedding.

I have irregular periods. I thought I timed it well with our date, and the closer it got it became quite clear it would not work out, i would have it the day of the wedding. So i went back on BCP after being off of them for a year and it totally messed up my cycle. I tried the whole taking the packs back to back ( my Dr. ok’d it) and skipping my period and for me it did not work. I did not have it for the wedding day but got it one day into the honeymoon. And my cycle is still messed up, worse than ever before:(

If you wait until a month or two before your wedding to go on birth control it is very likely that your body will not have adjusted enough to definitely delay your period – it is common to have some spotting the first couple of months on the pill. I’d get on it sooner to let your body adjust.

I didn’t even consider it when we picked our date. I’m not on the Pill (and don’t want to go back on) so I’m just hoping for the best.

Birth control seems like the best option, although I hate the idea of it like some of you..purely based on the fact that it makes me an emotional psycho biatch.

I’m pretty regular but even then, 6 months would be hard to plan.

Good luck!

I track my period with an app on my phone and it’s scary accurate lol. You just enter in the start date and end date and it gives you your high fertility days and your next expected period days for an entire year in advance. I just won’t go on birth control because I don’t want to spend the extra money but I can 98% of the time depend on that app to know when my period is coming (sometimes it’s a day early though but thats rare.)

Could you theoretically calculate your period based on bcp A YEAR AWAY if you are already on pills?

Has anyone got a link to apps that do this?

I have one called my days on my HTC.   I’ve been using it since I got my phone and its been pretty accurate so far.  I think it gets more accurate the more you use it because it calculates your cycle based on what you input.

@jenangeles: I use that one too, although my periods have all but stopped since I got a Mirena coil. I was bang on regular when we were using condoms as contraception.
